Just finished the "How to manage a remote team" course, organized by GitLab and Coursera. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in remote work structures, and in how to transition from a traditional (co-located) workplace to a fully remote one.

GitLab also has a fantastic handbook covering this particular topic and much, much more. If you haven't done so yet, go check it out!

In January 2022 a new person joined my team, which marked the beginning of my role as a team manager. I was extremely excited about this, and also anxious: I really wanted to establish a rapport of trust and openness with this person. So I prepared an onboarding plan in advance, which I shared with them from day one - despite it not being ]fully polished/finished - so they had visibility of what would happen in the coming days and weeks, and also for them to keep me accountable.
I tried to the best of my ability to apply not-so-archaic management techniques as the ones suggested by Radical Candor and KYT, and tried to foster a culture of feedback between us.

Things seemed to be going well, and indeed they were! :) During a check-in session held 3 months after the start they explicitly said that they felt happy and cared for in our work relationship, and that they appreciated that I focused not only for their performance and task execution but also for their general wellbeing and mental health, which hadn't been the case in previous jobs. I must say this was the most impactful feedback I ever got from a colleague, which made me super happy and proud!
